Room to grow

13 March 2018
I've been using this for a few months now as a file server and backup destination (including Macs with Time Machine via SMB). With appropriate 7200 rpm NAS hard drives, speeds are very good. There is direct support for Seagate's IronWolf drive diagnostics, if you use those. It's a box that can start small and expand as you go, adding drives as required, adding RAM and the SSD caches as necessary. Synology actively support the product with frequent updates to DSM software. The case is a little more lightweight than it appears in pictures, and the drive trays require no tools to populate. I had a few issues with audible case resonance. Maybe...

Synology DS918+ NAS Server

17 January 2019
Great 4 bay NAS Server. Robust and reliable. Easy to set up but found detection didn't work from a Win 7 pro box.... fine from Win 10.
NIC Teaming (Synology call it Bonding) is great for improved throughput and reliability (I connected it to a stacked switch). Really only using it as a NAS but lots of useful applications onboard. I really like the look of the VPN server, especially as it supports Open VPN.
Only disappointment is the external 'special' power pack. Would have been better with say two inputs for a 'standard' laptop PSU or better still build in PSU

Does what it says

Works great with WD Red disk and ssd cache enabled. Only down side is you need two m2's to have the cache works as expected.

Not just a NAS, this thing is a powerful server.

16 July 2018
I bought this just looking to store files, but before I knew it I had decomissioned 2 x Raspberry Pi's running on my network as I was running Deluge, Plex, PlexPy and Pi-hole all through the container service "Docker" running on the DS918+.

The expandability options are fantastic. Initially I've got 2 x 4TB drives in it, but when budget allows, I'll pop 2 more in allowing 12TB of storage with 1 x drive fail protection. For the most important files, I've subscribed to Synology's C2 service, which runs a scheduled back up service to the cloud (with client encryption for those paranoid types out there).

Soon enough I'll pack it out with a...

Fast Response from NAS

8 June 2019
Many years a old Win 2003 server were slow or delay response. plus out date a Windows 2003 Server. I won't spend that new hardware & Window server.
I was planned that NAS device, until I found best choice DS918+. After Transferred data and Database SQL active were completed. On 2 weeks later, I am happy and result that NAS went fastest response and quiet operating. That Synology DS918+ are positive committed and no matter a expensive price and high quality product. I have two a Seagate Ironwolf 2Tb NAS and Two a Intel 760P 256Gb SSD m.2 for caches performance.

SYNOLOGY beat than for Windows 2016 Server plus Hardware serv...

Great Product

13 May 2019
Pros:
Works Great
Easy set up with basic technical knowledge
Runs my plex server like a charm.

Cons:
Quite loud so you might need to change the settings.
Basic Vodaphone router wasn't one of the routers it has been preconfigured to work with so I had to manually port ford a few things so it could connect to the internet.

Synology DS981+

28 February 2019
I have owned both Qnap and Synology and decided to buy the DS981+ as it had the 2 x M.2 NVMe SSD slots for caching or more storage. Performs as promised and has bigger fans at the back for cooling compared to my previous Qnap.

a must have

20 December 2018
As usual, the product is well packaged and do the job.
I put only 4 stars because synology has changed their rack slots so if you move from another nas to this one, you'll have to use your screwdriver a lot.

Good and affordable NAS for media

19 November 2018
I bought a Seagate Ironwolf 8TB drive and the Synolgy Diskstation 918+, An awesome combo to get for your media server. Looking forward to get more to fill up the other slots in the NAS and quote possibly the Synology disk expansion module.

Fabtastic!

30 June 2018
I was running a pretty big HP server with Windows 10, that was quite noisy and slow

The 918 does everything and more quieter and faster.

Never going back!
